Pros

Unlimited challenges and opportunities: World travel; Education opportunities; Make friends and contacts from across the country and around the world; Decent pay and benefits (medical, dental and vision); Good retirement plan (currently but that could change); Tremendous support services - commissary, PX, Family Support, child care, morale welfare and recreation facilities and services; etc

Sometimes very long hours in unfriendly places
Missed special occasions - holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, etc

Advice to Management

Stop the senseless and unnecessary changes.

    I have been working at US Army full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, retirement, and alloted time to work out

    Cons

    Pay
    Work load
    Little to no upward movement as a civilian

    Advice to Management

    Properly staff your units, don't just allow positions to go vacant for years at a time. Properly compensate your civilian workforce, don't expect them to work overtime and not offer them the option of being paid for that time. The stringent conditions of employment make it extremely to get promoted as a Soldier and as a Civilian.

    Pros

    Great especially if you're not set on a career path or just want to get some working experience in while serving the country.

    Cons

    Every job experience is different. There is much need to be flexible and resilient, sometimes to a sacrafice.
